The fine people at Revelation are pretty excited about their wine glass. The Revelation website is a pretty epic attempt to capture the magic of this glass. While the introduction loads, the website kindly asks you to turn on your computer speakers. At this point it is clear that something big is going to happen…and then BLAM! What seems to be a naked woman drinking out of one of these Revelation glasses appears. Impressive.
The next slide is of a regal looking gentleman who looks like Martin Sheen playing Anthony Dias Blue in a made-for-tv movie judging a wine using the Revelation glass. Again, impressive.
The following slide appears to be some engineering diagram of how the Revelation glass works. Apparently the hole in the sip spout introduces air into the wine to bring to life. To confirm this interpretation I call upon my arch-nemesis Steve Heimoff for a second opinion. He tries comparing the setup to a typical bong, at which point I have to point out to Mr. Heimoff that I was born during the Reagan Administration and was certainly not a hippie, and that I had no idea what he was talking about.
The site almost loses me with the diagrams, but it pulls the entire vision together with another naked woman with the headline “Be afraid…Be very afraid”. I don’t know what this means, but I am into it.
After sitting through the entire slideshow six or seven times to get to the slides with the naked women, I finally figure out that I can visit each slide at will, which allows me to confirm that yes, this glass is all about bringing wine to life by introducing air into the wine just before you drink. A clever idea, and one worth checking out.
